All is well, fortunately. And likewise!

We don't really at the moment, though they could. An aspect of the
Fullscreen API is that it fullscreens a particular element, which has
some advantages for developers even when the application always takes
up most of the screen.

I don't really know the motivation behind those platforms not exposing
the API so I'm probably not the right person to ask.
